It is wintertime now in Meru, which is in the foothills of MT. Kenya and at 6,000 ft. And even though we are practically on the equator, it is quite cool, especially in the mornings when it is often very foggy.

Learning Without Hearing St. John Church in Darien, CT is sponsoring 45 students in the St. John Bosco Education program. We visited all of them - 36 in eight different primary and secondary schools, and the other nine we saw at The Bosco Centre on Parents and Guardians Day. Two of these students are in a school for the deaf.

A Bit of R & R at Eagles Wings Eagles Wings, on a bluff above Lake Naivasha, is one of our favorite spots. It is a quiet and peaceful place where we rested and enjoyed the views in the mornings and evenings after a couple of long days of visiting two projects in the area.





Learning to Sew and to Hope We went to the Maasai Threads of Hope Sewing Centre in Ngoswani, which is near Masai Mara. Two young women from Bissil, who finished primary school last November, are learning how to sew school uniforms and dresses. They had made beautiful dresses for themselves. They are hoping to have sewing machines and their own shop after they finish the course this November.



Making Charcoal and Saving Trees We visited Sanivation, which just two years ago, won prize money at the ASME Ishow in Nairobi, and now is in the business of making charcoal with sanitized human waste and charcoal dust. Their latest and most impressive project is in Northern Kenya - in the Kakama Camp where there are 180,000 refugees and the UN is flying in wood for them to cook with.




Please pray with us

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
please gift us with Your presence
so we can be a gift to others
in carrying out your work.
Help us to see You in the faces of
Your children
and make room in our hearts
for joy.

~Living Faith
